In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how David prays for the utter destruction of the evil rulers & officials of the day. Their evil is sourced in the heart and their defilement has existed since the womb.
Indeed, God will judge the wicked but God also promises to reward the righteous.

"Corrupt Officials Will Be Punished Once and for All!"
Here Pastor Geoff Gives Some Helps for the Lonely: -- from Psalm 36
Nothing in this world will ever lastingly satisfy or cure your loneliness. (1, 4)
God dwells in interpersonal relationship of happy joy in the Triune Godhead. (5, 6-7, 9)
God created man with deep fellowship with Him and with others. (10)
Saints must live by faith & actively trust in the abiding & satisfying love of God. (7-9)
In this Super Study, Pastor Geoff declares that CFBC unashamedly confesses the literal, historical-narrative reading of Genesis 1-2 which inevitably leads one to a young-earth, divine-fiat, sovereign, supernatural, unrepeatable viewpoint on Creation.
Listen to this helpful sermon & the discussion at the end.
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ -- the heart of Pauline theology -- as Philippians 3:3-6 reveals two very different ways of life --- trusting in Christ or trusting in credentials.
Verse 3 reveals trust in Christ alone as those who are the "true circumcision" (of the heart). Verses 4-6 shows Paul's list of credentials where he shows the magnitude of his religiosity and how it is all unable to add to or contribute to his saving in any way whatsoever.
Salvation is found by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
"Critiquing the Sinners Prayer & A Biblical Alternative, Part 2"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Philippians 4:1
and provides 2 lessons for us to glean from Pastor
Paul's example. Paul overflows with love for the
believers and lavishes love upon them.
Description In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits Mark 7:1-13 on how the Pharisees/scribes set aside God's Laws to uphold their own traditions.
We see the account unfold in 3 ways:
1. CONFRONTATION -- tradition of man (1-5)
2. CONDEMNATION -- Truth of God (6-8)
3. CORRECTION -- Tragedy of error (9-13) www.CFBCSTL.org
From the Mount of Transfiguration now we descend to the mess in the valley. The 9 disciples have failed to cast out a demon from a boy. A desperate father comes to Jesus and tells the story (in detail) and Jesus will cast out the demon.
The disciples were over confident and did not pray (and fast); nor did they have great faith (cf. Matt 17).
In this lengthy account, John the Baptist battles with some doubts as to whether Jesus is in fact the "Expected One". Jesus gently, compassionately & biblically reminds John of who He really is (from texts in Isaiah) and reminds the people that John is the greatest of those born of women -- yet anyone born in the new era (under the New Covenant) have far more blessings and benefits that John enjoyed.
This message provides 7 ways for you to battle with doubt in your life.
